*In this new late-night feature – which will run Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I’ll get the ball rolling myself, but would LOVE suggestions. Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*
Actually, this’ll be the last for this week, since tomorrow is a holiday here in the U.S., but we’ll pick up next Tuesday again.
Jen requested a few picks for plus-sized coats, so here we go:
DKNY Hooded Single Breasted A-Line Wool Coat – was $360, now $189.99
Now I love belts, as you all know, but it drives me nuts that nearly all plus-sized coats feature belts. Crikey, don’t designers know that plus-sized bodies come in a wide variety of shapes? OK, end rant. I thought this style had fabulous details – the mock turtleneck, a-line hem, and darling hood – and DKNY is a trustworthy brand. Since it has Designated Boob Room, it won’t work for all figures, but it’s a great non-belted option for those who like a high waistline.
Woman Within A-line 3/4-length peacoat – was $149.99, now $89.99
The vendor is calling this a peacoat, but it looks more like a swing coat to me – exaggerated a-line and very little shaping from the shoulders down. Regardless, I love that it comes in this brilliant cobalt, bright red, and purple in addition to camel, herringbone, black, and heather gray. Goes up to size 34, too.
Calvin Klein Quilted Faux Fur Hooded Down Coat – was $300, now $159.99
Most of the plus-sized coats I’ve seen are lined wool, a fabric that generally makes for some lovely draping, but if you live in a truly frigid climate you’ve gotta upgrade to real down! This coat comes in black as well as this warm, taupe-y gray. I totally dig the waistline shaping within the quilting – accentuates the waist you’ve got, or creates the illusion of one if you’re not super waist-i-fied on your own.
Other not-currently-on-sale resources for great plus-sized coats:
- Torrid – Tons of cute, on-trend options most of which are buy one, get the second for 50% off right now!
- Old Navy – They’ve only got four coat styles for sale right now but ach, are they ever lovely. Classic, stylish, and sophisticated.
- Roaman’s – The focus seems to be on leather, lightweight, and toppers, but there are a few marvelous lined wool coats mixed in there, too.
